Match Thread: Challenge Cup Round 2

Recommended Posts

I couldn't see an existing thread, so here goes.

Wigan St Pats v West Hull kicked off a few minutes early, and the BBC live stream's a little blocky for me. Currently 0:0.

Still, come on you Greens! :kolobok_wink:

Someone on Twitter claiming that the stream is geo-blocked. Aggravating if true.

Enjoying the game but Hull looking very comfortable at the moment.

Of course no sooner do I say that than St Pats score! 

Still correct, though. West Hull look much more coherent and savvy.

Brilliant game so far. These amateur games are always incredibly brutal and full of passion. I really enjoy these early challenge cup rounds.

Agreed. I like the way these early cup matches ease us into the new season; it's a reminder of what the game is all about.

Absolutely! Whoever it was at the BBC who decided to show every round is a genius. This is a level of the sport that many have never seen before.

Contractual obligation IIRC. (I seem to recall we had this discussion last year - the BBC only have the rights to show the cup in the UK, so even though the overseas internet rights haven't actually been sold to anyone, they still only show it in the UK.)

Nice try by West Hull to finish the game.

Geographical ignorance, I know, but is that actually St Patrick's church in the background?

What a great game that was, very proud of my team, let's hope we get a good tie in the next round, playing like that we can give any league 1 team a decent game! I don't know what others think but these challenge cup games are a lot more exciting that a lot of Super League games are.
